I actually have a vote for AL MoY and I'm going to try and put together some metrics to guide my vote.

I read somewhere that we shouldn't ignore this spike in power going into next season. What say you? League wide hard hit% is over 31% for the first time since 2007
Eno Sarris

Exit velo is up, HR/FB is up, and it's stayed up. If they don't change the ball again, this is the new reality.

I wouldn't take Contreras over Perez......Montero and Ross are getting alot more playing time lately. Montero's back is much improved, apparently.
Eno Sarris
12:33
PT is a problem. On per-PA work, I would go with Contreras though.

Is Ryon Healy good? Will he remain at 3B for the A's?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Yes and yes. I like him as a .280/20 guy.

How do I explain Ivan Nova to my children?
Eno Sarris

Have curve, will travel.

Trey Turner, bonafide or bonnefacio?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Bonafide.
Though good job on that one.

Considering a big trade in a deep keeper league--Would you move a $13 Donaldson for a $22 Harper? I'm pretty on the fence
Eno Sarris
12:35
If Donaldson were a year older or the more expensive one maybe.

Hey Eno! So my team is ridiculously stacked with pitching...I have Kershaw, Max, Sale, JoFer, and Thor, and I'm going to lose in my fantasy playoffs, because...well, H2H. :(
Eno Sarris
12:35
... yeah.

Sounds like both the Braves and Phillies will be at least minor buyers this off-season. While neither will be major playoff contenders, could they improve enough to make the NL east the toughest division in baseball?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Phillies were the rabbit this year, so I almost named them as the other NL team. A pitcher could really change it up over there, particularly if Nola and VV are healthy next year.
Merv Throneberry
12:37
There's something about Devenski...his K/IP is solid, BB/9 is stellar and he can roll for multiple innings. Think there's any way the 'Stros consider starting him next year?
Eno Sarris
12:37
I do, and his changeup is really good. One of the biggest velo gaps among starters. If I hear that is happening in the spring, I'm jumping.

Sick Kid = Eno Chat on a Thursday! Yea buddy! (the chat part, not the sick kid part, that part sucks!)

Any experience with Philadelphia-area IPAs?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Nugget Nectar? That's about it.

Is everyone going to do a review of their season predictions? This is always fun.
Eno Sarris
12:38
I nailed three or four and was super wrong on the rest.

Between 1926 and 1928, Babe Ruth accumulated 35.6 WAR, leading the AL every year. During that stretch, he also accumulated not one MVP vote. Not a question, just....what?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Seems, uh, Troutesque.
Kristen

What is it about barrel-aged stouts that make them seem thinner than non-BA ones?
Eno Sarris
12:39
The alcohol? Usually stronger.
hhh
12:39
What do you think the A's do about their hole in CF? I can't imagine they roll with Smolinski/Eibner/Brugman very long. You see them making a play for, like, Inciarte?
Eno Sarris
12:40
That's a rumor, but I wouldn't try to imagine what the A's will do. A platoon in CF sounds very much like them.
AD
12:40
Fun fact: Only 3 players since 2000 have hit as many HR as Galvis with a lower RC+
Eno Sarris
12:41
Hah. There's a few like that this year. Odor's only 11% better than the league with 31 homers! Adam Jones has 27 homers and a 102 wRC+.
Bo

Do you have any good advice for succeeding in head-to-head playoffs? I finished 1st in the regular season but I'm now looking likely to bomb out in the first round of the playoffs through a combination of injuries to key players and bad luck, and my only solace is that this league pays the regular season champ a decent amount. Is there any way to fight back against the randomness of playoffs?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Quantity on the pitching side, so perhaps a drop of a hitter for a pitcher in the playoffs. A quick hook with anyone on the fringes that isn't a keeper. That's about all I have for you.
Matt

True or False: Billy Butler is, in fact, more valuable than a ham sandwich.
Eno Sarris
12:42
Well, can I put some bacon and sriracha honey mustard on there? Maybe on a brioche bun with some melted brie ?
12:43
Because if I can...

If the Jays continue to collapse and miss the playoffs, will Gibson be gone and will the organization start a rebuild?
Eno Sarris
12:43
People seem to like Gibbie but I don't really get it.
